Hey, she made it to the final, which kind of surprised me, but it speaks for itself. She's gotta be near 40 because I remember her being a little older than me when she came on the scene and even i've now started the descent portion of 30's. Father time is undefeated and athletes get old right before your very eyes..

The criminals sure aren't going to give theirs up and guns are easy to get when you have defacto open borders. It's not law abiding citizens doing all the killing despite what the left claims.

It cracks me up whenever people say, "Last weekend in Chicago...." to make a point.

I see where you are coming from now 3rd ...You spell Iran with  a capital "I"  and Americans with a small "a"..The country you give a capital letter to Iran remains the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism a distinction the country has held for many years....and the country that is rocking in the free world a small letter. I think some of you will never get over your defeat in the Revolutionary War...

Slim, "Iran" is a proper noun, the name of a country, and therefore is supposed be capitalized. The word "american" isn't. If he were to write "America" then he would use a capital "A".

How about you hold yourself and the position to a high standard and give people a reason to want to visit after a big accomplishment? Trump is a phony, loud mouth embarrassment to this country. I suppose this is a win-win because this frees up more time for his cheating golf resort trips he is so famous for.

And he has done a good job of holding peace with other strong nations so far...

People like who they like for their own reasons and they dislike the other guy. I think very little of it has to do with political accomplishment. Just naming recent Presidents, I would put both Obama and Trump over G.H.W, Clinton, and G.W. I was too young to fairly judge Reagan but based on historical reference there are many I can put both Obama and Trump over. If you pick either, I would posit that you are extremely biased and your bias has nothing to do with politics.

It was a stupid fight to begin with. The Census works on the honor system. They don't fact check that stuff. Most illegals just don't participate. If they would've put those same illegals on, those same illegals would just do the same they've been doing and not participate.

I am a product of Oakland Public Schools, which isn't saying much, so I may be wrong but I was always taught that it is gauche to end a sentence with a preposition.

Who's pitching? The .500 team could win. That's the beauty of baseball. Only major team sport that you could say that about. If this was the NBA, the all-star team wins by 100. It'd be like 174-70 but in baseball, even the best hitters can go 0'fer. The best pitchers can serve on up. With todays juice ball the all-star team probably kills the .500 team but with a traditional ball, the .500 team could win.

You guys really are degenerates. I don't even watch all-star games, let alone wager on them. And how does LA stand for "loser"?

With the money they pay him, he can buy a locksmith.

To the people who say Trump, and the people who say Obama, i'm curious as to how so?

I swear, midnight gives me a hard time about not picking a side but you people make it hard to. The republicans push a lof of agendas that I just can't get behind (they push some I definitely can and do) but the democratic party, and it's constituents, are all batsheet crazy. The drug companies are fleecing Americans all while flooding the streets with opioids and pushing us right into a crisis. They are comparable to the cartels. And here you are talking about their "free speech". You have democratic candidates who say, "We're not gonna campaign to the middle-class, nor even lower-class Americans. We're not gonna campaign to the forgotten Americans. Those is middle America, in the rust belt. Flyover country. We're not gonna canpaign to the veterans. We're not even gonna follow our old playbook and campaign to African Americans. Nope! We're gonna campaign directly to illegals!" To the point where you have candidates dusting off their high school Spanish and sounding like idiots.

So you hate Trump so much that you're defending big pharma? Ha. I swear, there are many nutjobs, "...on both sides", that will say, defend, and/or overlook anything to bolster their side. Obamacare is a great concept, yet no without flaws. Repeal and replace is a scam and that's why it has yet to go over. The skyrocketing cost of perscription drugs is a huge issue and Obamacare didn't do anything to address this. Trump campaigned on bringing prices down. Trump, though often misguided, atleast feigns addressing his campaign promises. Democrats talk a lot and say nothing. It's no surprise that Hillary didn't campaign on any kind of platform. You can't break a promise you don't make. Everything Trump has done, some I agree with, a lot of it I do not, but everything he's done are things he said he would do, ir attempt to do, on the campaign trail.

Key hates it. Hey, I used to be an unders guy too. I'm still able to nail some nice F5 unders but I sure lose more than I used to. I now try to be disciplined and just stay away from totals. I can't bring myself to play overs at the rate the current trend would dictate and yet no undee is ever safe. I used to think the guys who hollered juiced balls were like the guys who holler "script" after every loss. I would say, "It's just launch swings, blah, blah, blah." That's definitely a big part of it but now I feel like there isn't a question if the ball is juiced.
